Have you been hurt at work?
No matter what type of job you do, you could be at risk of suffering an injury or illness in the workplace. Although some jobs do carry more of a risk of injury than others, this doesn’t mean that you won’t suffer an injury whilst at work, regardless of what type of job you do.
Is your injury job related?
In some instances, you may suffer an injury which is directly related to the type of work that you do. If you work in an office and use a computer all day, for example, you may find that you’re at risk of suffering from repetitive strain injury.
Similarly, if you work with potentially dangerous chemicals, you may find that you develop an illness as a result of being exposed to these toxins.
If your injury is related to the type of work that you do, a workplace injury solicitor in St. Austell could help you to make a compensation claim and you could obtain compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered.
What if your injury isn’t job related?
If you’re at work when you’re injured but your injury isn’t job-related, a workplace injury solicitor in St. Austell could still help you to make a claim. If, for example, you tripped over loose floorboards in the workplace, this may not be directly related to your job role but your employer could still be liable.
